The Siouxland Big Give is organized by the Siouxland Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in Siouxland and celebrate nonprofits doing amazing work in our community. Our Seventh Annual giving day will take place on Tuesday, October 1, 2024. The goal of this community-wide giving event is to match Siouxland area supporters’ passions and generosity with local nonprofit organizations already doing great work. Through the combined participation of all people who love and care about the Siouxland area, we can significantly impact the future of our beloved community. Many nonprofits have solicited matching fund sponsors to amplify charitable donations and make each dollar go further. 

To become a participating Nonprofit Organization, you must meet ALL criteria:

1. Nonprofit must be a 501(c)(3) public charity (please check your IRS Determination Letter). Only one project/program per tax ID numer will be eligible to participate. Organizations NOT allowed include city governments, organizations of worship, parent-teacher associations, and membership clubs. 
2. Nonprofit must be headquarted in Siouxland area and/or perform the majority of its mission programs in Siouxland area. All funds raised by Big Give must be restricted to support Siouxland. 
3. Nonprofit must fundraise for a specific project that will need to be approved by SCF staff by September 15. A "Project Guidelines and Suggestions for Success" document can be found in the Toolkit on this website. 
4. Nonprofit must pay $50 entry fee to participate. Deadline to register is August 1 each year. 
5. While the Siouxland Community Foundation is responsible for managing the online giving platform and promoting the overall marketing of the event, each nonprofit is responsible for an estimated 20-60+ hours of marketing efforts in the months and days leading up to the capaign to create a sense of excitement throughout Siouxland. In order to have a successful campaign, your marketing plan must include making sure your online profile is complete and updated on the Big Give website; planning and writing a qualified and compelling project description (along with pictures or links to similar projects); drafting and sending emails to board members, staff, and loyal volunteers; and creating content and posting on social media and your nonprofit's website.
